CPR's logistics arm lands wind turbine contract

Canadian Pacific Logistics Solutions (CPLS) has a bit more wind in its sails. The company recently signed a multi-million dollar-contract with Vestas Canadian Wind Technology to move equipment used to build wind turbines.

Vestas is building an 84-turbine wind farm in Hak, Saskatchewan. During the next six months, CPLS will move European-built equipment on seven Canadian Pacific Railway trains from the Port of Houston to Hak. Each 67-car train will move dozens of 125-foot blades and generators enough to build 12 wind turbines.

The first train, which departed the port May 23, is scheduled to arrive in Hak today. The six other trains will move in three-week intervals.
